Smile Router Table

Hello,
I am writing to get some ideas as to what height I should build my router table. I already bought the same top that is being used on the tv show so I am wondering about ideas as to the height of it.
Any help would be much appreciated. Just to ad a comment I think this forum is a great thing!
Thanks,
Gramps

Gramps. I made mine to fit me ,The table would not be the same for a 6' 2" worker as it would be for a 5'2" worker, so I say make it the size that will fit you so you don't have to bend over or reach to work on it , It should be just the size for you to be at ease with,O.K. Learning Herb

For me a good height is 2-4 inches below my elbow.

Stand at your kitchen counter. That's the way I judged my router cabinet height. Whatever height you can rest your forearms and make the motions of routing comfortable. Screw a couple of 2x4s on the bottom of each side. If it's too high take one 2x4 off each side......still too high take the other 2x4s off if it's too low then stand on the 2x4s.
